Perfect picks, zero dollars

We've all had friends who claim to have predicted unlikely sports outcomes. But Larry Stone has proof.
Like many people, Stone, the national baseball writer for the Seattle Times, does a column prior to the start of the playoffs every year predicting how things will go. This year, he pitched a perfect game, calling the entire run correctly. He nailed all seven series, including the Giants beating the Rangers in the World Series. Here's the proof, his October 4 column.
Unfortunately for Stone, he didn't put his money where his keypad is, so he has only bragging rights. He seems to be enjoying it, though, doing some good-natured gloating (which is amusing if you know him, because he's about the most humble guy you'll ever meet).
Still, he's got to be kicking himself just a little bit. That would have made one heck of a parlay.
